Engine light, smell of oil and loss of power after full service and cam change...
Good folk of AO...
Just had a full service, cam belt change, thermo change etc...
Car was running very well.
Drove car to Kent with no problems.
Return journey and thought I smelt some oil in the cabin but no symptoms.
Drove back from work (ten miles) tonight and thought I smelt burning oil again. About a mile from home engine light flickered on a few times and started to run really lumpy. Stopped, check oil and water but both bang on the marks (checked all as precaution before I left Kent as always best to check just after a service in case something wasn't put back right during the service work). However, when I checked the dipstick and openened the oil filler cap, small amounts of smoke could be seen.
Have performed the obligatory search but can't find anything with the exact same symptoms.
What are people's possible diagnosis?
